failed to detect the above two i.e CD/DVD/usb
reboot exception : reboot in 120 secs
Can anybody help me … what exactly is going on …??
Any help and response would be greatly appreciated …
waiting for replies …
I only ever got 11.1 to work on USB by installing the live image using unetbootin, then deleting the config.isoclient file in the root of the USB, and copying config.gnome.isoclient or config.kde.isoclient (depending on which LiveCD iso it was) and renaming the copy config.isoclient.
Hope that helps.
hey … thanks for the reply …
please tell me where i can find config.[kde/gnome].client… ??
and may be then . i can give a try …
Also in the root of the USB. I followed instructions found in the comments here;

Maybe you can piece something together if the file isn’t there. If not, maybe give it a try with the standard 11.1 iso.
Installing via USB is definitely a frustrating experience - if it’s any consolation, it seems that 11.2 is going to make it much easier.
